Stock market today, February 23, 2015: Good morning! U.S. stock futures were soft Monday morning. However, major European markets jumped in early trading, and Germany's DAX hit a new record high. They are still gaining from Friday's news of a conditional deal that will allow Greece to remain in the Eurozone for at least the next four months. The deal sent U.S. markets up Friday - the Dow saw a 154-point rise, and S&P 500 Index notched a new record high.
Today, investors will continue to keep a close eye on the ongoing drama between Greece and its creditors in the European Union. Greece must present a list of economic reforms by the end of the day for the deal to continue.
